from texas, duck or burgess for five minutes. >> mr. frantz, let's stay on the subordination issue. the act of 2005 m. sure you are familiar with because you are one of the original hires at the long project office in 27 to administer this program in 1703 under subordination with the obligation to be subject to the condition that the application is not subordinate to other finance team. simple straightforward statement. even among boyhood like myself can understand it. the difficulty and i think mr. graham is exactly right. the difficulty goes that then the law does not go on to prescribe any penalties, civil or criminal in violation of days. so while i believe the secretary to have been a technical violation of this passage of the energy policy act of 2005, there is no penalty. for that reason earlier this year by introducing another bill, 5063 to prescribe the monetary penalty between 10 and $15,000 for people who violate the statute, the bill is based on the anti-deficiency act and provides administrative penalties for executive branch officials who violate appropriations bills
